Parents are invited to find below our French nursery’s program for daily activities.

The French nursery’s program was created in order to guarantee the parents living in Bucharest a similar system to the one in France.

The reception in the morning (8 am. – 8.30 am.) is the gateway between the outside (the home of each child) and the kindergarten environment. This is the time spent with parents to say goodbye to their child;

 The children’s wellcome « Le Bonjour » (9 am.) this is the time after the arrival of all children. This time allows the group “to start” the day with a daily ritual: forms of greeting, games, stories, songs, “lesson of the day” …

 Appetizer (9.30 am.);

 The daily activities in our French nursery  alternate between workshops with defined groups and some free time for more individual support. Children are divided according to their age (small, medium or large section). Therefore, the day is animated by individual or group activities and punctuated by meals and moments of calm;

Fine motor skills activities plays an important role in the mental and physical development of each child, which is why we organize daily motor activities;

Lunch ( 12 am.);

Rest time; (12.30 pm. – 2 pm.);

Snak; (2.30 pm.);

Afternoon activities (3 pm. -3.30 pm.);

The « Au revoir » Children return to their parents (3.30 pm. – 4 pm.). This is the time for the exchange and transfer of information between parents and the kindergarten’s team (knowing how the children took part in activities, rest and meals.). It is also a time for the children of transition between nursery and the return to the family.
